How old do you have to be to get a tattoo?
In order to be eligible to be tattooed by us, you have to be 18 years of age. Please bring a legitimate, state regulated ID.
How do I book an appointment?
The first step in booking an appointment is to pick your artist. Then, set-up a consultation with them by either e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling the shop at (505) 266-TAT2. Of course, you can always come by the shop to get a feel for the environment, and we will be happy to walk you through the process.
How do I get a price quote?
Since each and every tattoo is unique, it is hard to give a quote over the phone. We do have a shop minimum. The shop minimum is 1 hour which is the equivalent of $100. In order to schedule an appointment, you will need to pay the minimum of $100 as a deposit that will apply towards your tattoo on the day of your appointment. The most preferred method is that you come by the shop and take advantage of a free consultation with one of our artists so we can better discuss your ideas.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash and credit card; however, cash is preferred. Tipping is also appropriate, and appreciated.
What if I can’t make it to my appointment?
We require a minimum of a 24-hour cancellation notice. Failure in notifying your artist of your intent to reschedule could result in a forfeiture of deposit.
How do I take care of my tattoo?
We actually pass out a card with healing instructions at the end of every tattoo. But, a safe rule of thumb is to wash your tattoo with a non-scented antibacterial soap: once, every hour for the 1st day, every two hours on the 2nd day and every three hours the 3rd day. Air dry or paper towel dry. Massage the newly tattooed area with Aquaphor ointment. Avoid prolonged sun exposure and especially, submerging the tattoo in water. And often overlooked, please remember to sleep with your skin wrapped to avoid contact with other materials for the first couple of nights after receiving your new tattoo.
